In 1976, the Laurel Bicentennial Committee published a booklet, "Laurel and Jones County's Yesteryears: Stepping Stones to Tomorrow." With the kind permission of the author, Pauline L. Hester, I have posted some of this information to this site. The section on the industrial and economic development of Laurel is very extensive. The section on the Early Years of the County brings us from the settlement to the Civil War to the contemporary history. Information on the emergence of the City of Laurel is also found here.
For an early view of life in rural Mississippi, please go to the recollections of Mr. M.P. Bush's talk before the DAR in Laurel in 1912.
